The moment one of these makes it into a Nexus phone, I'm buying it. My HTC Incredible doesn't run the latest CyanogenMod, so, I'm getting ready to spring for a replacement.

Seriously? 5 inches? I still can't understand why people actually feel comfortable lugging those kinds of bricks around.

If you need an extra bag to lug your electronics along with you then you're doing something wrong.
